Can You Be A Pilot With Eczema

Hello,

I want to know if I will be able to obtain 1st class medical with eczema. Would eczema prevent a 1st class medical or have any restrictions on becoming a commercial pilot?

Thanks

Luc,

None of us are Dr’s here so we really can’t give advice on these things. That said I don’t believe eczema is a disqualifying condition however if you’re on medication you’d have to make certain it’s approved by the FAA.

You really need to consult an AME (Aviation Medical Examiner) in your area. Only they could say for certain.
